J.T. Bock's A Surefire Way, the first tale of the UltraSecurity force, delivers the following:
         a group of superhumans (UltraAgents) joined to protect citizens from evildoers—for a pre-contracted fee
         a kick-butt, rookie agent with daddy issues who doesn't follow the rules
         a quick-tempered boss annoyed with his rookie agent for not following the rules
         a flawed, yet incredibly attractive, hero afraid of bugs
         a half-roach villain with an ego problem
         a self-absorbed, vengeful god set to destroy the world (What else would a god do with his time?)
         a sexy goddess with a personality disorder
         a forbidden romance and even more forbidden sexytime
         loads of action and adventure like running, jumping, shooting guns and things, traveling to alternate worlds, battling cranky gods, bouncing a head around, searching for creepy Aztec skulls, and other fun stuff
         did we mention forbidden love?

UltraAgent Surefire’s plan is simple: Capture the transhuman thief Raven. Win back the respect of her father. Get a raise.
Easy, right?
Except Surefire just broke the number one rule of her employer, UltraSecurity, a niche security firm that solves crimes committed by genetically enhanced humans like Raven. She trailed Raven into a warehouse without backup. And something more powerful than any transhuman is waiting inside.
Raven’s plan is simple: Atone for his past crimes. Return stolen spiritual artifacts to restore the world’s balance. Don’t get caught by UltraSecurity.
Easy, right?
Until a spunky UltraSecurity agent is suddenly on his tail, although Raven wishes she was on … well, never mind … he can’t get distracted from his mission. Because she’s followed him into a warehouse filled with his reclaimed relics, and Raven’s ex-partner in crime is about to unleash a supernatural-sized complication into his plan.
His old partner has accidentally summoned an Aztec god who will destroy the world unless Raven stops this spirit with a superiority complex. To do this, Raven must team up with Surefire and reveal the truth about his powers, exposing her to a force that can either save the world or destroy them both.
Following Raven into that warehouse throws Surefire into a surreal world filled with moody gods, day-glo skulls, dizzying dimensional portals, maniacal half-roach magicians, and a sexy thief who is more than he appears under his snug t-shirt. Is Raven a criminal, or is he working for a higher power? Surefire needs to be certain, because if she joins him on this mission, she’ll have to surrender everything she believed in for a surefire way to save the world, discover her destiny and find true love.

            Well I was intrigued because the author wanted to be Indiana Jones or James Bond as a child… me too (only I was a little older than a child, but you get the idea).  Our church had a group called Boys Brigade (kind of like Christian Boy Scouts) and I always wanted to join.. but they wouldn’t let me.  So this book really spoke to that part of me.  The heroine is uber powerful with skills that would put James Bond to shame.  My kind of woman.

            I always hate the scenes in the movies where the woman gets all helpless and needs a big strong man to rescue her.  What a crock.  Real women do the rescuing.  Until I got sick and disabled, I did everything a man could be except father children.  I can hunt, fish, change a tire, kick butt if needed, etc., and I make it look good.  So I love a book (or movie) where the female protagonist is strong and powerful.  It’s even better when there is an equally powerful man who lets her use her abilities or challenges her, such as Raven does in this story.

            Add in the fantasy/supernatural bend to the story and you have almost all of my favorite elements in one story.  The story is written with such skill that these supernatural elements to not seem out of place or character.  It is easy to believe that this could happen.  The Aztec history and influence was fascinating.  I loved the detail and historical information in the story.

            I was quickly drawn into the story easily slipping into the pictures in my mind.  The writing sparked a fabulous tableau of images that easily flowed from the author’s descriptive words through my mind’s eye.

            I give this story 5 out of 5 clouds and look forward to more from this new author.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to read and review my book. As a new author, it means a lot when readers take a chance on different story.

    I'm sorry to hear that they wouldn't let you into the Christian Boy Scouts, because it was a loss for them with all your great skills! You totally rock by showing the world what it means to be a strong woman—a strong heroine.
